President's Message 



How does a small women's college in 
Staunton, Virginia prepare its students to 
be members of a global community. 7 The 
answer is, in more ways than you may 
think . . . 

Fitty-seven Mary Baldwin students 
visited foreign countries as part of Study 
Abroad programs during May Term. 
Travel provides an invaluable opportu- 
nity for students to learn firsthand about 
other cultures. We are proud of our new 
language and culture department, which 
was cited for its innovative approach to 
foreign language study in the August 18, 
1995, issue of the Chronicle of Higher 
Education. The department will empha- 
size studying language in the context of 
culture. We are also proud of our faculty 
who strive to bring an international 
perspective to their classrooms, people 
like those featured in this issue of the 
magazine. 

Our international students contribute 
significantly to appreciation of other 




cultures on campus. In recent years, we 
have had students from Argentina, 
Bulgaria, Columbia, England, Ethiopia, 
Kenya, India, Italy, Japan, Liberia, 
Philippines, Sweden, Thailand and 
Germany. In addition, four different 
groups of Japanese students come to 
Mary Baldwin each summer to study 
English. 



Last spring the college's Advisory 
Board of Visitors chose globalization as 
the topic for its spring meeting. After 
two days of presentations by experts in 
the held and hours of spirited discussion, 
the board compiled a final report to 
submit to the college. The report said, 
"The single most striking conclusion of 
the board was that MBC is already doing 
a good job of preparing students to be 
citizens of the world." 

It is gratifying to know that we're on 
the right track, but we cannot afford to 
be complacent. With your support, we 
shall continue looking for new ways to 
bring the wider world to Mary Baldwin 
and Mary Baldwin to the wider world. 



Sincerely, 



Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson

Every new editor comes armed 
with a vision for his or her publica- 
tion. Mine is quite simple: that 
when you come home and discover 

The Mary Baldwin Magazine amid the piles of bills and junk mail 
on your hall table, you will pounce on it and thumb through it 
right there in the hall. That you will not even have taken your 
coat off before you find an article of irresistible interest, and that 
it will take the concerted efforts of your spouse and children to 
drag you away. That later you will think about that article and 
even page through it again during a quiet midnight hour. 

With this in mind, my first efforts are in the direction of 
content. In this issue you will find more feature articles and 
fewer departments. Mary Baldwin is an exciting place to be these 
days. Admissions and SAT scores are up. News organizations 
from around the country are lining up to cover the opening of 
the Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership. Faculty are busy 
researching everything from Queen Elizabeth I's royal progresses 



Editor's Note 



to bullfighting. Alumnae are 
taking leadership roles in 
organizations from the Abbey 
Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Arts 
Center in Williamsburg, Virginia, to the Republican Na- 
tional Committee. I want the magazine to reflect the ferment 
and vigor of the college and its graduates. 

My vision is not to have a good magazine; it is to have a 
great magazine. This is what I will be working toward. We 
will be soliciting input from various corners of the campus 
and other corners outside the campus. We are establishing 
beats in order to cover the news around campus more 
thoroughly and efficiently. We may start a Letters to the 
Editor section. Furthermore, do not be surprised if you see 
some changes in design in the next magazine. Consider your 
input solicited, also. Have you gotten caught reading in the hall 
yet? Why not? Let us hear from you.

relaxed and not as pressured as the 
American culture seems to be. Although 
we were busv every- moment ot each day, 
lite in New Zealand and Australia truly 
progresses at a slower pace. 

The trip changed my outlook on life 
and made me realire just how small the 
world can be. It permitted me to participate 
in two unique cultures and expenence 
rirsthand a world that I had previously 
only read about. I plan on using what I 
learned when I become a teacher. 



I hope to be able to return to New 
Zealand and Australia sometime in my 
future. I hope Mary Baldwin College 
continues to have the May Term study 
abroad programs in addition to the 
other study abroad programs they now 
offer. Students are able to give back 
to the college community what they 
have learned while abroad. Having 
students and professors going abroad 
actually enhances and enriches the 
whole college.

The program made 

me realize how much 
there is in the world 
that we don't see, and 
the fact is that we 
only live once — so 
to see it all, you must 
live wisely and make 
priorities. I was 
reminded that money 
and material objects 
aren't the important things in life; 
rather, memories, sights, people and 
laughs are worth more than any- 
thing. I remember this and live by it 
everyday. When I begin to get 
caught up in American ways, I think 
of the people I met in Australia and 
New Zealand who were so much 
happier than we are but have so 
much less. These things are learned

as your eyes are opened to a new way 
or style of living. It is so wonderful. 
Some great experiences that stick 
out: in New Zealand — staying with 
the Maoris, hiking on Unipukapuka 
(an island in the Bay of Islands), 
going jet boating and sea-kayaking. 
In Australia, snorkeling in the Great 
Barrier Reef was an experience of a 
lifetime! Also, Sydney Zoo, kanga- 
roos, hiking the Blue Mountains, and 



paddle boarding at 
6:30 a.m. 

I learned more in 
one month than I 
did in years in a 
classroom. I was 
constantly absorbing 
new things around 
me, and I wanted to 
read about where we 
were going the next day. It was so 
exciting and new. 

I graduated four days after I 
returned, and when I came home, I 
felt sad. I wanted to return to that 
learning, excitement, beauty, 
wonderful attitudes, pleasant people 
and travel. 1 cannot wait to return to 
both countries. They are both 
uniquely wonderful. 



"You have to trc 



el with an open mind and turn those little crises 



adventures" 



While at MBC, I studied in three 

countries: England, Bulgaria and 
Japan. Each of these experiences has 
greatly influenced my decision to 
become an anthropologist. I cannot 
even begin to describe how my 
experiences in these three countries, 
especially Japan, changed my outlook 
on America, on foreign policy and 
government, and showed me the vast 
differences in cultures throughout the 
world. For example, I learned so much 
about Japanese life, values, and politics 
from living with a host family and 
working in the Diet. In Bulgaria, the 
interaction with the students pro- 
vided valuable insight on life in a 
struggling Eastern European country. 

One experience that 
sticks in my mind from 
this trip is the border 
crossings from Bulgaria 
and Greece to Turkey. 
All the checkpoints 
bordering Turkey were 
heavily armed, though 
there is no real threat 
of invasion from that 



country. As our van passed through 
the checkpoint from Turkey into 
Greece, our vehicle went through a 
car wash to "wash" the "dirt" and 
ideas from the van and us as we 
entered Greece. When we asked 
people about it later, their reply was 
that the water washed away any 
germs and diseases from Turkey. 
When we told them the car was the 
only thing that got cleaned, they 
shrugged their shoulders. Even 
though this act was benign, it 
reminded me of the ethnic cleansing 
that is going on in Bosnia and Croatia. 
Ethnic distinctions in this area of the 
world are fervently defended. 




KATIE If ETRAUX 



BULGARIA/GREECE TURKEY 



ANTHROP/ASIAN STUDIES 



Another experience I remember is 
when an old woman, whom I did not 
know, came up to me while I was in 
Sophia and started to talk to me. 
Though I did not understand much 
Bulgarian, through her kindness and 
gentile manner, we were able to have a 
conversation without much effort. She 
took my head in her hands and told 
me I was beautiful. I looked into those 
old woman's eyes and my perspective 
on Bulgarians changed forever. 

If possible, I will continue travel- 
ing throughout the world. And yes, I 
would recommend the program to 
anyone interested in traveling who 
can "rough" it, that is, not expect 
American standards or American 
food. After all, you 
are there to study 
and live in another 
country. You have to 
travel with an open 
mind and turn those 
little ctises into 
adventures!

foreign languages fluently. Every- 
where I went people spoke English, 
but I could not communicate with 
them in their native language. This 
experience was very frustrating- 1 
hope eventually to be fluent in 



French, Spanish and Japanese. 

My experiences in all four countries 
demonstrated the importance of an 
international approach in any career, 
particularly environmentalism, which

but by being in the country, it was like 
my eyes were reopened. I guess you 
could say I have a new, even a 
stronger appreciation for Italian 
Renaissance art. A good way to say it 
— a passion for art! 



The greatest thing about the group 
that went to Italy is that none of us 
were close friends before the trip. We 
knew each other as acquaintances and 
that's about all. By the end of the 
trip, we had all become close. Study 
abroad gives a person the chance to 
have a great learning experience and 
to make friends.

"If you ask many Americans to draw a loaf of bread, they 

will probably draw a Wonderbread-looking loaf with a plastic 
baggie and twist tie," says Dr. Anne McGovern, head of 
MBC's new Foreign Languages, Literatures 6k Cultures De- 
partment. She adds, "Now, if you ask any French person to 
draw a loaf of bread, they're going to draw a long, flatter, 
tube-shaped baguette. The same word — bread — conjures up 
a totally different image for a French person than it does for 
an American. To understand this difference, and not to judge 
it, is an attempt at cultural sensitivity and understanding." 



In developing the new department combining languages 
and anthropology, the major goal was to help students de- 
velop cultural proficiency. This consolidation of programs 
was featured in the education section of the Chronicle of 
Higher Education in August. 

"There are knowledge and skills that make you culturally 
proficient," says Dr. McGovern. "There are behaviors that 
are acceptable in certain situations in one culture, but not in 
another. If our students have the knowledge that different is 
OK, then they become more culturally proficient . . . When 




our students learn the skills to 
discern what is appropriate and how 
to react, then they become even 
more culturally proficient. Our main 
goal is for students to reach that 
level of sensitivity, understanding, 
knowledge and language skills." 
The idea for the department 
began with a discussion Dean of the 
College Dr. James Lott had with 



several MBC language 
professors. Following that 
lead, Dean Lott approached 
MBC's Assistant Professor of 
Anthropology and Spanish 
Dr. Carrie Douglass about 
combining the language and 
anthropology disciplines. 
Four majors are offered in 
the new Foreign Languages, 
Literatures & Cultures De- 
partment: Asian Studies, 
French, German and Span- 
ish. Students may also take 
courses in Japanese and Rus- 
sian. Courses in anthropol- 
ogy will be required for ma- 
jors. 

"The merging of anthro- 
pology and languages was a 
logical step," says Dr. 
McGovern. "Anthropology 
is the study of culture and so 
is foreign language. There is 
a really dynamic relation- 
ship as each field affects the 
other. A willingness to put 
yourself in an uncomfortable 
situation and learn a new 
language is the greatest re- 
spect anyone could possibly 
show to another culture." 

"This is cutting edge 
stuff," says Dr. Douglass. 
"There is a national move- 
ment toward emphasizing 
cultural aspects in language 
studies. The American 
Council on the Teaching of 
Foreign Language is 
developing their national 
proficiency tests to measure 
cultural knowledge as well as 
language skills. We have a 
great opportunity to have a 
more coherent language 
department." 

Students majoring in 
Asian Studies, French, 
German or Spanish will have common 
experiences within the department. 
Each student will be required to study 
cultural anthropology and 
sociolinguistics. The senior seminar 
will be a mutual experience for majors, 
as each seminar will have a common 
theme, for example, "Women in the 
Workplace." A French major might 
present a paper on women working in 



France and an Asian Studies major 
might focus on women in an Asian 
country." 

Dr. McGovern says, "As we develop 
seminar themes and topics, our stu- 
dents will not only learn about the cul- 
ture of their target language, but they 
will learn about the cultures that their 
peers are studying. All majors will 
make progress reports and share their 
research about different cultures." 

There are 1 1 full-time faculty mem- 
bers in the Foreign Languages, Litera- 
tures and Cultures Department, includ- 
ing natives of Peru and Japan. Dr. Car- 
rie Douglass says, "Our students will 
learn other cultures through many ven- 
ues including classroom activities and 
watching SCOLA, direct TV from Eu- 
rope and other areas of the world. My 
students will watch the film series 
Destinos, a Spanish version of an 
American icon — the soap opera. Stu- 
dents enjoy keeping up with the char- 
acters, and at the same time they are 
learning aspects of Spanish culture." 

She says that the department will 
also take advantage of the Internet. 
"During our May Term class in Bul- 
garia, several of our students utilized 
the Internet to converse with native 
Spaniards," she reports. "They were 
ecstatic when people on the other end 
really understood what they were say- 
ing." 

Dean Lott is excited about the possi- 
bilities of this new program He says, 
"This program and department are 
consistent with Mary Baldwin's com- 
mitment to international education. 
We see the real potential to develop 
this program as a model for other lib- 
eral arts colleges like MBC." 

Dr. McGovern agrees. "When our 
students study a language at MBC, they 
will better understand that language 
because they have studied the cultural 
contexts in which that language func- 
tions. They will in turn develop a 
meaningful understanding of that cul- 
ture and language. For example, they 
will not only speak French fluently, 
but they will know that French people 
aren't rude just because they don't al- 
ways smile in the same situations as 
Americans . . . Knowing when to think 
French loaf and when to think 
Wonderbread will help our students 
break bread in any culture."

Spain's dilemma 



Carrie 

Douglass on 
bullfighting 




hy Mary Beth Plant 

After centuries of association , it is 
hard to imagine Spain without thinking 
oj majestic fighting bulls , but few 
Americans understand how deeply 
divided the Spanish people are over this 
tradition . 

Dr. Carrie B. Douglass, assistant 
professor of anthropology and Spanish, 
has just completed The Horns of a 
Very Real Dilemma: Bulls and the 
Negotiation of Identity in Modern 
Spain, a book that attempts to explain 
the place of the bulls in Spanish culture 
and identity. 



In many ways, this book has been a 
life-long project for Dr. Douglass. A 
self-described Army brat, she lived all 
over the world as a child. Born in 
Panama, she started school in Japan and 
graduated from high school in Germany. 
"Home," she said, "was wherever the 
furniture was." 

After earning aB.A. from the 
University of Nebraska, she and a 
girlfriend made plans to travel through 
Europe. They started in Athens and got 
as far as Barcelona, where she fell in love 
with Spain; that was the end of the trip 
for Douglass . She spent the next eight 
years there. 



She met her future husband, Fernando 
Opere, while she was teaching English as a 
foreign language in Barcelona. It was 
in Spain that she first envisioned fier life's 
work. "J realised J Ioi'ed teaching," she said. 
"I realized the classroom is where I flower. " 
However, she also discovered that English 
was not what she wanted to teach. 

Douglass received her Ph.D in 
anthropology from the University of 
Virginia and joined the Mary Baldwin 
faculty in 1988. The following is an 
excerpt from the introduction to her book, 
which has beeri accepted for publication 
by the Symbolic Series of Arizona 
University Press: 



LOS TOROS 

There are at least 16 different kinds of spectacles or 
games involving bulls in spain. only about 500 out of 
15,000 festivals held annually are the bullfights most 
Americans think of, the corridas. The rest include such 
activities as running bulls in the streets and clowns 
playing with bull calves. the collective name for all 
these bull games is los toros. 



Although most of the data for 
this analysis comes from intensive 
tieldwork done during the years 
1983-1986, it is important to add 
that I lived in Barcelona from 1970- 
1978. Those eight years witnessed 
the decline of the dictatorship, the 
death of General Franco, and the 
transition to democracy under the 
constitutional monarchy. Further- 
more, these were the years that 
citizens realized the extent to which 
the industrialization and urbaniza- 
tion of Spain had taken place: a new 
Spain was ready to be born. All of 
this I saw from the perspective of 
Catalonia, a prosperous, culturally 
distinct region located on the 
Periphery of Spain. Inevitably, my 
experiences and first-hand knowl- 
edge from that period have crept 
into this analysis of los toros.... 

What I found interesting about 



studying bullfights in Spain was that 
so many people showed irritation 
when I said I was studying them. I 
felt defensive and embarrassed to 
admit (in some conversations) that 
I was investigating such a tacky, 
"stereotypical" subject, as if I, 
single-handedly, were responsible 
for perpetuating myths about Spain, 
and thus, affecting the listener's life 
in a negative way. At the same time, 
in most of Spain, there is hardly a 
patron saint festival without the 
bulls, hardly a street without a bar 
decorated with a bullfight poster or 
bulls' horns, hardly a conversation 
without a bullfight expression. 
Moreover, for every Spaniard that 
threw up his arms in exasperation at 
the foreigner's interest in bullfights, 
another Spaniard assured me that 
the bull was the totem of Spain, 
that fiestas revolve around the bull, 
and that bullfights were a sublime 
art. "What is going on?" I asked . . . 

[The bulls] serve as a vehicle to 
talk about two historical Spanish 



debates about identity. The first is 
the place of "Spain" in Europe. This 
has to do with Modernity. For 
almost 200 years, many Spaniards 
have seen the presence of los toros 
in their country as symbolic of the 
obstacles to Spain's modernization, 
and thus, acceptance into the 
European community and world 
view. Los toros symbolize non- 
Europeaness, and must be rejected. 
"Only the tourists go to the bull- 
fight," say these Spaniards. 

The second debate concerns 
regional identity and the place of the 
various regions in the construction of 
the Spanish state. This debate has to 
do with Tradition. Although some 
regions view themselves as more 
"European" than others, the "cul- 
tures" also define and reify them- 
selves through their traditions. If 
they were all modern, they would all 
be the same. Tradition differentiates 
one culture from another. Thus, 
regions often identify with one 
taurine game and not another . . . 



Nevertheless, the bull is the 
thread that ties all the regions 
together. Rather than the animal, it 
is the games with bulls that change 
as one moves across the tapestry 
that is "Spain." Although some 
places in the south of France and 
Portugal also celebrate their fiestas 
with bulls, the debate over the toro 
bravo (wild bull) is the truly signifi- 
cant Spanish debate and thus can be 
said to signify "Spain." 

Spanish ambivalence is probably 
predicated on a perceived opposi- 
tion between modernity and tradi- 
tion, and the desire to have both. 
Does one have to give up a LCCC 
year old tradition (the bulls) to be 
modern? 



"Take the bull away from here," 
says Spanish writer Antonio Gala, 
quoted by Douglass later in her book, 
"and ive'll see what is left. Will we rec- 
ognize ourselves without the passion of 
the pro and con of los toros. 7 " 




THE UNCOMMON ART OF 
THE COMMON MAN 

by Sarah O'Connor 




THE QUILTING PARTY', unidentified artist, probably 18544875. 

. . . when 1 heard that there were artists, I wished I could some time be one. 1} I could only make a rose bloom on 
paper, I thought I should be happy! or if I could at last succeed in drawing the outline oj winter-stripped boughs as I 
saw them against the sky, it seemed to me that I should be willing to spend years in trying. 

— Lucy Larcom, A New England Girlhood, 1889 



A, 



it the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk 
Art Center in Williamsburg, VA, the 
paintings of living Georgia artist Mattie 
Lou O'Kelley with their loving depic- 
tion of family and community life jostle 
for space with rare African-American 
dolls from the late 19th century. 

"I never tire of looking at our collec- 
tion," says Carolyn Weekley '67, direc- 
tor of the Folk Art Center. This is the 
oldest institution in the United States 
devoted exclusively to collecting, ex- 
hibiting and researching American folk 
art. Opened in 1957, the collection 



started with the 424 folk art objects do- 
nated to Colonial Williamsburg by 
Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. 

Wandering through the ma:e of 
rooms, visitors are immediately im- 
pressed with the variety and vitality of 
the collection: an early 19th century 
painting of a baby who has fallen asleep 
in a red high chair. His head lolls to 
one side and he smiles in his private 
milk dreams. A wooden carving of a 
blacksnake swallowing a mouse, fash- 
ioned by an unknown carver in the 
early 20th century. The mouse is half- 



way in, its eyes still open. A matching 
pair of whale teeth from the 19th cen- 
tury. One is engraved with the figure of 
Justice, the other of Liberty. "The 
Quilting Party," a painting done in the 
mid- 19th century by an unknown artist. 
A dog chases a cat, a white-haired man 
dandles an infant on his knee, a young 
man offers fruit to an attractive young 
woman, a couple hold hands secretly 
under the table. 

Individual personality and humor 
shine through this art in ways not often 
seen in classical art. We are told in one 



10 



wall exhibit, "Playfulness is an essential 
element of being alive, and folk art pro- 
vides ample ways to express and share 
that aspect of human nature." 

What are some of the other functions 
of folk art, and what makes an object 
folk art? According to the museum bro- 
chure, "Folk art is the art of common 
people, done with un- 
common style." For 
Carolyn Weekley, 
there are two impor- 
tant criteria. First, folk 
art is generally created 
by people who have no 
formulaic training in 
art. Second, it is unin- 
hibited. "The artists 
don't feel any inhibi- 
tions in expressing 
themselves. They don't 
say, 'I can't paint like a Charles 
Wilson Peale, so I won't paint." 
The attitude is, 'I will paint 
regardless.'" Folk art is created 
for several purposes: decoration 
(a carving), to provide a his- 
torical record (a portrait), or 
for a practical purpose (a 
weather vane). 

Weekley 's interest in early 
American culture began in her 
childhood in Gloucester 
County, close to Williamsburg. 
That interest grew at Maty 
Baldwin College, where she 
majored in art and was known 
affectionately as "Stuffy-," a 
nickname bestowed by her fa- 
ther, who considered her "big 
stuff." After graduating in 
1967, she entered the distin- 
guished Winterthur Program, 
associated with the University 
of Delaware. There she re- 
ceived an M.A. in Early American 
Decorative Arts and Cultural History in 
1971. 

In a career that has never wavered in 
its course, she started in 1971 as the ad- 
ministrator of the Museum of Southern 
Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem. 
NC. After a stint as curator at the Vir- 
ginia Museum of Fine Arts in Rich- 
mond, she was named the curator at the 
Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art 
Center in 1979, and then in 1984 she 
became the director. Last year Weekley 



also took on the directorship of Bassett 
Hall, the former Williamsburg home of 
Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller; and 
Carter's Grove, a 1 755 plantation 
owned by five generations of the 
Burwell family, located on the James 
River six miles southeast of 
Williamsburg.

CAROLS" WEEKLEY '67. director of the 
Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Center in 
Williamsburg, Va. 



As she moves about the museum 
pointing out one example of folk art 
after another, Carolyn Weekley 's enthu- 
siasm is contagious. "This one is to die 
for," she says of a squat jolly carving of a 
fiddler. "I have lots of favorites. When 
you're doing a lot of research on an art- 
ist, the tendency is for that person to 
become your favorite." 

She is currently studying the paint- 
ings of Edward Hicks (1780-1849). 
Hicks was raised by a Quaker foster 
family and later became a Quaker 



preacher and a carriage painter. His 
paintings were generally composed for 
his family and friends. During his life- 
time his reputation was confined to his 
hometown area of Bucks County, Penn- 
sylvania. 

In order to understand more about 
how Hicks worked, Weekley is painting 
her own re- 
production of 
his most fa- 
mous painting 
"The Peace- 
able King- 
dom," which 
is in the 
museum's col- 
lection. "A lot 
of people 
don't under- 
stand what his 
paintings 
mean. They 
are a very seri- 
ous statement 
about the rift 
between the 
Quakers in 
the early 19th 
century [when 
conservative 
and evangeli- 
cal groups broke apart]. My work now is 
focused on the symbolism in these 
paintings. They are complex and very 
intellectual." 

"To me art is one of the great resources 
of my life. 1 feel that it enriches the spiri- 
tual life and makes one more sane and 
sympathetic, more observant and under- 
standing, as well as being good for one's 
nerves.'' 

— Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, 
January 7, 1928. 

Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, for whom 
the museum is named, began collecting 
folk art in the 1920s before it had been 
"discovered." Hers became the premier 
collection of folk art paintings at that 
time. One of the founders of the Mu- 
seum of Modern Art in New York, she 
saw an artistic relationship between 
folk art and what modern artists and 
sculptors were trving to achieve. 

In 1932 the Museum of Modern Art 
opened "American Folk Art: The Art 



MLYEHAHA. William B. Gleason, 
1856. 



11 



of the Common Man in America, 
1750-1900." The show contained 175 
pieces from Abby Aldrich's collection 
and traveled to six other sites. The first 
major exposition of its kind, it estab- 
lished folk art as an important part of 
American culture and stimulated inter- 
est in folk art across the country. Abby 
Aldrich donated her entire collection 
to Colonial Williamsburg in 1939, and 
her husband John D. Rockefeller, Jr. 
contributed the money to build the mu- 
seum. The Folk Art Center has contin- 
ued to add to its original collection 
through donations, auctions, contacts 
with family members of artists, dealers, 
and in some cases ongoing relationships 
with living artists. 

The museum, in coordination with 
Colonial Williamsburg, frequently orga- 
nizes material around themes that help 
people understand their own lives. "It is 
very important that we are located in 
Colonial Williamsburg," says Weekley. 
"We have the opportunity to make 
bridges intellectually between 18th 
century culture, which is very foreign to 
many people, and the present day." An 
exhibit opening in January 1996 will be 
titled "Redefining Family." It will exam- 
ine the way the family unit in the 18th 
century evolved into something very 
different in the 19th, something similar 
to what we know today. 

A special goal for Carolyn Weekley is 
to see the museum used more by chil- 
dren. "The material is accessible, excit- 
ing and dynamic for children. We don't 
have to try to get them interested; they 
are interested." The museum is explor- 
ing ways to train teachers to use the 
museum as part of their classrooms. 

"One of this nations greatest treasures 
is our rich and varied cultural heritage — a 
heritage forged from the ways and customs 
of the many different peoples who settled 
our land. This proud heritage has been pre- 
served and passed down throughout our 
history bji traditional artists and crafts 
people . Engraved in their artistic 
traditions , in their wood carvings , pottery 
and quilts, in their spirituals, fiddle tunes 
and tall tales , is the legacy of the American 
experience." 

— Bess Lomax Hawes, director of the 

Folk Arts program of the National 

Endowment for the Arts. 




BABY IN RED CHAIR, unidentified artist, 

1810-1830. 



Touring the exhibit at the Folk Art 
Center raises many questions about the 
connections between folk art and craft, 
music and lore. Weekley is quick to tie 
them together. "There are so many 
things which were produced in the craft 
tradition that in their own time would 
just have been considered utilitarian 
objects and which we have decided 
have artistic merit and we have made 
them art, such as pottery or weather 



vanes." Pursuing the links between 
folk art and folk music, the Center re- 
cently held an exhibit of Blue Ridge 
musical instruments. In conjunction, 
they offered a workshop on the folk mu- 
sic tradition in which present-day in- 
strument makers and musicians partici- 
pated. 

Making connections is a significant 
part of Carolyn Weekley's work and a 
significant part of what folk art is all 
about. Weekley builds bridges between 
the 18th century and the present, be- 
tween children and art, between folk- 
lore and folk art. Folk art provides con- 
nections between past generations and 
present, individuals and families, indi- 
viduals and community, the spiritual 
and the material.... between that which 
makes us different and that which binds 
us together. 

Quote on the wall as one leaves the 
museum: 

"How much piecin a quilt's like livin' a 
life... The Lord sends us the pieces, but we 
can cut 'em out and put 'em together 
pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a 
heap more in the cuttin out and the sewin 
than there is in the calico. The same sort o' 
things comes into all lives , jest as the 
Apostle says, There hath no trouble taken 
you but is common to all men." 

— Aunt Jane of Kentucky, ca. 1900

On two occasions in the 1930s, Charlotte Ranson Taylor, Class of 1892, spoke to the students of Mary Baldwin College, 
reminiscing about her days at Augusta Female Seminary and about her cousin Mary Julia Baldwin. What follows is an edited 
combination of her talks. They provide us with a charming word picture of Miss Baldwin, who was never photographed or 
painted. The original, handwritten texts are filed in the Mary Baldwin College archives, gifts of Mrs. Taylor's son Alfred. 



Cousin Mary Julia, as we called her, was 
a dear cousin of my father's. She and my 
grandmother were first cousins and she 
was a frequent visitor in our home from 
my childhood. She would drive up to 
Oakenwold in her carriage with her 
coachman, Uncle Ches. He would help 
her out and my father met and escorted 
her into the house. She would sit in the 
library and talk to father and mother of 



her girls, her problems, and her plans; 
and they talked of us and of our home 
life. She knew our names and showed 
interest in our games and pets. We felt 
she was a real friend. 

Miss Mary Julia Baldwin was born on 
October 4, 1829, in her home on South 
New Street, now torn down. Her 
parents died when she was quite young 
and her grandparents gave her love and 



care. She was an only child, retiring in 
disposition, with few intimates and 
always studious and a great reader. She 
was educated at Augusta Female 
Seminary under Reverend Rufus W. 
Bailey, its founder, and was an honor 
graduate. [In 1863], she was persuaded 
by Mr. [Joseph] Waddell to take over 
the presidency of AFS. Mr. Bailey had 
been followed by several other princi-

pal> serving only a year or two and 

during the war the school was at a very 
low ebb. Miss Baldwin took over the 
school, with Miss Agnes McClung as 
head of the domestic department. She 
overcame all difficulties, borrowed 
equipment from her friends and neigh- 
bors, used all sorts of makeshifts for 
furniture, took the girls in [with] payment 
in food or fuel, and the school revived and 
has had unbroken success ever since. No 
one anticipated for Miss Baldwin the 
wonderful development of character and 
influence that was to be hers. 

I wonder if you can imagine her. Miss 
Baldwin was tall and well-proportioned; a

commanding figure, a gracious presence. 
Her hair was smooth and shiny, and she 
wore it parted in the middle and drawn 
down over her ears into a low knot 
behind. Her dress was always black silk, 
[with] a close fitting basque with lace or 
linen collar; a full, long skirt; to the day of 
her death we think she wore hoop skirts. 
Her hands were soft and shapely; her 
skin was smooth. She never wore 
glasses, but carried a lorgnette that she 
used when looking closely at paper or 
book. Miss Baldwin was highly intellec- 
tual, with a wonderful keen insight into 
human nature; calm, full of strong faith 
and courage. 

I would like to make you girls see the 
Augusta Female Seminary as it was 
when I came here. When I was eight, 
Cousin Mary asked father to let me 
enter AFS. Two other girls were 
entering in the fall, Anne Cochran and

Mattie Wayt. We were friends and 
comrades all through our years there. 
The first year we were taught by Miss 
May Brooke, a senior, I think. Cousin 
Mary advised with her as to our studies, 
heard us recite, and kept us from 
annoying the older girls. 

The next year we graduated into Miss 
Nannie Tate's room at the end of the 
back gallery. [Nannie Tate was the first 
full graduate of the seminary and served 
on the faculty for 50 years.] You went 
down a step into a long narrow room, 
with an aisle up the middle. Miss 
Nannie sat at the end of the room on a 
raised platform behind a low railing 
with her desk and her footstool on 
which we loved to sit when she helped 
with a hard example. Miss Baldwin was 




an almost daily visitor to that room. 
She knew us, what we were studying, 
and was pleased with our progress. It 
was a joy to us when our names were 
on the board tor perfect spelling for a 
certain number of days, or when we 
could work correctly on the board a 
problem or example. She always 
looked pleased. 

One year, I sat by the window that 
overlooked the kitchen entrance and 
watched the groceries being delivered 
and the wagons bringing supplies. We 
always knew when the girls were to 
have soup or cabbage by the odors 
wafted up to us. We never went to 
school without a clean Mother 
Hubbard apron on and the older girls 
and teachers wore shawls. They were 



Miss Baldwin's dogs, 
Beauty and Midget.

charm and poise, filled us with a love of 
English history- Mrs. [Caroline] 
Crawford, a dear old lady, cousin of 
Miss Baldwin, taught us piano, and 
Miss [Helen] Fairchild had us all in 
chapel after two o'clock and tried 
vainly to teach us to sit correctly and 
write a flowing Spencerian style and to 
draw the beautiful squares and circles as 
she put the copy on the blackboard. Mr. 
[John] Murray taught us botany and 
astronomy and took us out at night to 
study the heavens. A splendid English 
teacher was Miss [Sarah] Wright- 1

literature and poetry. Mademoiselle 
[Agatha] Jacot taught us French; we 
had Mr. [Fritz] Hamer for music; and so 
it goes. They were charmed, carefree 
days. 

I think Miss Baldwin was especially 
interested in her day pupils- She wanted 
every girl in Staunton and Augusta 
County to have a chance at an educa- 
tion. No one ever knew how many girls 
she helped nor how much of her money 
she used in educating poor girls. We 
knew her love and prayers followed us 
each day. 

Miss Baldwin was a faithful member 
of the First Presbyterian Church, a most 
generous contributor, and she required 
the girls to attend the column [forma- 
tion]. Their costume was a black suit 
and grey uniform hat and how the girls 
hated those costumes. It was amazing at 
what angles they could turn and twist 
those hats to make them individual- 
Miss Baldwin had a parrot that 
perched on the back of her chair, and 
the girls loved to teach it bad words!

UWIL OPENS ITS DOORS 




On August 22, J 995, the charter 
class of the Virginia Women's Insti- 
tute for Leadership arrived at Mary 
Baldwin. Their first challenge was to 
make their way through the battalions 
of reporters who were on campus to 
cover the event. Over 30 news teams 
showed up that first day. Eight 
satellite trucks broadcast directly from 
campus. Additional reporters covered 
the wilderness orientation, the first 
coeducational ROTC classes at VM1, 
and the first weeks of classes at Mary 
Baldwin . VWIL has been or will be 



featured on CNN, FOX, ABC and 
CBS news, "Good Morning 
America," the "Today Show," local 
television and radio stations through- 
out Virginia and Washington, DC, 
and on National Public Radio and 
German Public Radio. Print journal- 
ists came to campus from the New 
York Times, The Washington Post, 
U.S. News & World Report, Rolling 
Stone, the Village Voice and newspa- 
pers and wire services from through- 
out the region. 

The 42 students met the challenge 



with good humor and intelligence , 
quickly becoming media savvy. The 
morning after their arrival found them 
on a two-mile run up and down Mary 
Baldwin's hills. After that they set off 
for a four-day wilderness experience 
where they backpacked, kayaked, 
completed ropes courses, went rock 
climbing and rapelling, learned to read 
maps, and went caring. . . but the 
students are perfectly capable of 
telling it in their own words. Here are 
one student's thoughts about her first 
few days :

(Reunion Giving Pivgram 



The 11 classes that gathered together during the festive 1995 Reunion Weekend pooled their resources in order to 
make a significant gift to Man- Baldwin in honor of their special year. The classes of 1940, 1945, 1950, 1955, 
1960, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985 and 1990 collectively raised over s 128,000 for the Annual Fund. 
Congratulations and thanks go to all who participated in this effort. 

Two classes were especially recognized for their exceptional efforts in raising money for Man' Baldwin. The 
Class of 1940 won the Reunion Giving Award for the largest gift, raising over '22,000, and the 50th Reunion 
Class, 1945, had the highest participation rate (57%). 

As you can see, their recognition was jusdv desen-ed. All classes raised more money in their reunion year 
than they had the previous year.

"If you want it bad enough, it comes 
from the heart and the mind,'" my 
squad leader said to us as we were 
learning to march in formation for the 
first time. Isn't that the truth. And in 
the past two weeks, the students of 
the charter class of the Virginia 
Women's Institute for Leadership 
(VWIL) have proven that, indeed, 
they do want it badly enough. As does 
Mary Baldwin College, who has 
fought so hard to have us here. 

It has been a tough road for 
everyone involved- For the Mary 
Baldwin College faculty and staff who 
created the VWIL program, it has 
been a constant, uphill legal battle. 
For the students entering the pro- 
gram, there is the uncertainty of a 
pilot program, one not yet steeped in 
tradition. That tradition is for us to 
establish. For parents, saying good-bye 
to a college-bound child is always 
hard, something made even harder by 
the constant surveillance of video 
cameras and news media from across 
the country. 

For those of us in the program, it 
has been hard coming into a new 
environment while the country has 
watched to see what would happen. It 
was hard being at Mary Baldwin for 
only a day and then leaving to go on a 
trip in the mountains of Virginia. A 
leadership challenge and learning 
experience, they told us. If only we 
had known what was in store. Hiking 
eight miles with a 45-pound back- 
pack, climbing rocks, white water 
kayaking, and getting up in the dark 
and going to sleep in the dark. It was 
hard not being able to see what you 
were eating for breakfast or dinner. 
And yet, no one backed down from a 
challenge. 

I will always remember looking at 
the double wire bridge connecting 
two ends of a gorge that, to me, 
looked like a bottomless pit, and 
thinking. Til never get across that.'* 
The challenges we faced, as a whole, 
were not physical as much as mental.

the most incredible thing I have ever 
done in my life and my eyes filled with 
tears when I got to the other side, 




followed promptly by Dr. Bryant, who 
Good job. I'm proud of you." 

I've never seen a group of more 
determined young women in my entire 
life; determined to succeed, deter- 
mined to Learn, and determined to 
lead. All 42 made it through the week, 
with the support and encouragement 
of each other. We came together as a 
group, as a family. Through our support 
of of eachoth: ;d challenges, 

overcame fears, and pushed ourselves 
to the limit. Dr. Bryant and our 
assistant director, Mrs. Nan Roth well, 
were there with us one hundred 
percent of the way. Their example to 

• ften gave us the strength we 
needed to face a new challenge. That's 
what VWIL is about. It is about being 
there for each other, learning from 
each other, and being proud of each 
other. 

What it is not about is trying to 
break down the tradition of the 
Virginia Military Institute. We have 
chosen to attend Mary Baldwin, a 
single-sex institution. We do not want 
to deny the cadets at VMI the same 
opportunity. Instead, we are trying to 
add to that tradition and create a 
tradition of our own. We are oft to a 
good start. Forty-two of us have 
entered the Virginia Women's Institute 
for Leadership, to begin and establish 
something to Live ror generations to 
come. We have been called pioneers, 
but deep down inside we just want to 
reach the fullness of our potential. We 
have learned that in order to become a 
good leader, it is often necessary to 
to '.Lew. 

1 am just one person, one of the 
I ncky few to be selected to participate 
in this "historic" program. Our stories 
are all different, and those differences 
help to make us strong. However great 
our differences may be, one fact 
remains. We are in this together, and 
together we will get through this.

The Progresses of Mary Hill Cole 



by Sean P. Steele 

"How do you communicate with your 
citizens when there is no television, no 
radio, no mass forms of media.' How do 
you have any source of power?" Ques- 
tions like these explain Dr. Mary Hill 
Cole's fascination with the series of 
royal trips, called progresses, taken each 
spring and summer from 1558 to 1603 
by Queen Elizabeth I. 

Dr. Cole, associate professor of 
history, has been named the recipient of 
the 1995-96 Patricia H. and Karl F. 
Menk Award. The award will allow her 
to continue her research at the Folger 
Shakespeare Library in Washington, 
DC. The Menk Award is presented 
annually to provide financial support to 
a faculty member on sabbatical. 

Cole's research seeks to answer 
questions about the propriety ot a 
woman ruler wielding power during an 
age that was opposed to such a notion, 
and the connections between the 
ceremonies of the progresses and the 
issues of female sovereignty. Trying to 




write about this in today's world, 
however, is a challenge. 

"You're trying to see things differ- 
ently based on w'here we are today. 
You're trying to see it from the eyes of 
the past. From Elizabeth's perspective, 
she was taking these progresses, in 
large part, to reinforce her royal 
policies . . . Imagine the sight of 300 
carts going down the road. It was 
incredibly chaotic." But out of this 
chaos, Cole asserts, Elizabeth formed 
a "ceremonial dialogue" with her 



subjects, a means of exercising power 
that intermixed politics and pageantry, 
ceremony and circus. 

Mary Hill Cole's interest in the 
progresses grew out ot, among other 
things, her doctoral dissertation in 
English history at The University ot 
Virginia. Cole plans to finish research- 
ing and writing a book based on her 
current research. She says, "This book 
will be one that someone who knows 
nothing about the progresses can pick 
up and read." 

When she finishes her own "royal 
trip", she hopes to bring the knowledge 
and insight she has gained during her 
sabbatical (which includes a month in 
London at the British Library) right 
back to Mary Baldwin and into the 
classroom. "I was looking for something 
that I wouldn't get bored with — and 
this has opened a lot of doors for me. I 
think my interest in how literature and 
history overlap might explain why 
many ot mv students become so 
interested in these subjects." 



The Menk Fund - an opportunity for faculty development 



The Karl F. and Patricia H. Menk 
Fund for Faculty Support and 
Development was established in 
February 1993 through an anony- 
mous gift from an alumna, who 
wished to honor the Menks' commit- 
ment to teaching, scholarship and 
mentoring. The donor was full of 
praise for Pat Menk and her accom- 
plished career. "Pat Menk showed 
us students that you could be a 
Ph.D., a mayor of a city, a historian, 
and at the same time be a good wife 
and mother." 

Drs. Pat and Karl Menk both 
served as members of the Mary 



Baldwin faculty. Pat Menk served as 
professor of history, college historian 
and author of the college's sesquicen- 
tennial history To Live in Time. Her late 
husband, Karl Menk, served as associ- 
ate professor of microbiology from 1959 
to 1981. 

Pat Menk selected a sabbatical 
program as the target of the gift fund. 
"One of the greatest strengths of Mary 
Baldwin College has always been its 
faculty," she said, noting the particu- 
lar importance of providing opportuni- 
ties for faculty development in a small 
institution that places emphasis on 
teaching. 



The fund was initially established 
with a gift of $25,000. Additional 
donations and earnings have 
brought the fund balance to 
$39,416. and part of its earnings 
are used annually to help support 
the Menk Scholar's sabbatical. The 
anonymous donor hopes the fund 
will grow to eventually support the 
full cost of the annual scholar's 
sabbatical. 

To make a special contribution to 
the Menk Fund, contact Lydia 
Petersson or Nancy Mclntyre at Mary 
Baldwin's Institutional Advancement 
Office. 540.887.7011.

YWIS program science whizzes get Gwathmey Grant 



They spent three weeks in July and 
August on the Mary Baldwin campus 
distilling cholesterol from, pork brains, 
culcurmg tennis shoe bacteria, and 
counting water-striders, among other 
pursuits. They are Young Women In 
Science (YWIS), a gathering of the best 
rising seniors in math and science in 
the state of Virginia, and their program 
has received a grant for 55,000 from the 
Richard and Caroline T. Gwathmev 
Memonal Trust. 

In its 10th year, the YWIS program 
offers students a preview of the methods 
and theories used in college science 
courses. "Participating in a hands-on 
intensive research experience helps 
young women gain confidence in their 
abilities and encourages them to pursue 
science careers," says Dr. Lundy Pent:, 
YWIS program director and MBC 
associate professor of biology. 



The Gwathmey Grant covered 
approximately one half of the budget 
for the 1995 session of YWIS. Dr. Pentc 
adds, "Mary Baldwin has continually 
tried to find outside funding for YWIS, 
and finally there has been a donor 
match." While the Gwathmey Grant 
alleviates current financial pressures, 
the college continues to seek substan- 
tial, long-term funding for this merit- 
based program. 

Kelly Kathleen Cwiak (right) 
o/ Fredericksburg, a 1 995 YW7S partici- 
pant, plans on studying chemical engineer- 
ing or biology when she enters college next 
fall. "The Young Women in Science Pro- 
gram was a wonderful opportunity to get a 
head start on my college education , " she 
said. "I learned to manage my time in a 
college setting and enjoyed all the chal- 
lenges of the program, especially Dr. 




Lundy Pentz's microbiology class. Young 
Women in Science has really prepared me 
for all the science courses that I will have 
to take in college." 

Ms. Cuiak is the daughter of Mr. and 
Mrs. Dennis Cuiak of Fredericksburg, 
VA. She is a senior at Stafford Senior High 
School. 



WTiat in the world? 

MBC s new scanning electron microscope opens a big window on a tiny universe 



by Sean P. Steele 

Truth can now be stranger than fiction. 
Thanks to the new scanning electron 
microscope located in the basement of 
Mary Baldwin's Pearce Science Center, 
dust mites look like extraterrestrial 
creatures, sand fleas like prehistoric 
monsrers, and the surface of a bird feathet 
like the bumpy terrain of the moon. 

Acquiring a scanning electron 
microscope was no easy feat, but 
according to MBC Professor of Biology 
Dr. Jacquelvn K. Beals, all of the hard 
work has finally paid off. "Our first 
application was turned down by the 
National Science Foundation because 
thev said we just wanted a fancy piece 
of machinery to play with," said Dr. 
Beals. "Our challenge was showing that 



we did, in fact, have an interdiscipli- 
nary program in the works to use the 
microscope- Our second grant applica- 
tion was approved in August of 1994 for 
$50,000 to be matched by the college." 

Now, according to Dr. Beals, "The 
microscope will bring 'dull things,' like 
skin or hair, alive to our science 
students ... It will give senior science 
students the opportunity to research 
things they had not been able to 
befote." Plans are underway to incorpo- 
rate the microscope into Professor Lundy 
Pentr's microbiology course. Professor 
Bonnie Hohn's botany course, and to 
utilize the microscope as a curricular 
bridge linking the various sciences — 
biology, chemistry and physics.

Doshisha Program 

The Doshisha Program is in its 14th 
year at Mary Baldwin. This summer 34 
students traveled from Doshisha Junior 
Women's College in Kyoto, Japan, to 
gain a cultural introduction to life in 
the United States and to improve their 
English. The three principal compo- 
nents of the program were academic/ 
cultural classes, field trips and interac- 
tion with counselors. Jeanne Martino- 
McAllister serves as director of the 
program. 




Saga Program 

The Saga Program has brought students 
to Mary Baldwin for three consecutive 
years. Administered through the

Program in Memphis, TN, 16 students 
from coed Saga University in Saga, 
Japan, spent one week at MBC com- 
pleting language and culture studies. 
Julia Pollock directs this program.

over Japan, including nine graduate 
students, spent six weeks at Mary 
Baldwin this summer preparing to enter

Staunton: The Atmosphere 

by Ko Tuda 



Historical, hilly, neat, peaceful 
— there are many words to de- 
scribe this city. Still if I have to 
express this city in a word. I 
choose "warm." Looking around 
this city from Mary Baldwin Col- 
lege, trees which surround a city 
look like swelling waves of 
ocean, roofs of houses look like 
floating ships on a sea. We can- 
not see what people are doing 
downtown from here. Still, we 
can see what the houses which are 



kept in good condition tell about 
what is going on. Once we go to 
the downtown, we can find 
white buildings of Mary Bald- 
win College from anywhere in 
downtown. From the viaduct of 
Staunton Station, we can see all 
the white buildings. They look 
like a coronet of a hill. The 
buildings built in 1842, are the 
symbols of Staunton. They fit to 
this city beautifully . . .

Justice and Mrs. George Cochran honored 
as Outstanding Virginians 



Shiga Program 

In its third year at Mary Baldwin, the 
Shiga Program operates on the same 
principals as the Doshisha Program. 
Twenty-one students from Shiga Junior 
Women's College in Otsu City, japan, 
visited MBC for three weeks. President 
Okano, head of Shiga and former 
president of Doshisha, valued the 
Doshisha Program at MBC so much 
that he introduced this program at 
Shiga. MBC Professor of Philosophy Dr. 
Roderic Owen directs the program. 




Longtime friends of Mary Baldwin 
College Justice and Mrs. George M. 
Cochran of Staunton were honored as co- 
recipients of the 1995 Outstanding 
Virginian Award. Their selection marked 
the first time that a couple has ever been 
chosen for the prestigious honor. 

Justice Cochran served on the Mary 
Baldwin College Board of Tmstees from 
1968 to 1981. He and his wife Lee Stuart 
Cochran have befriended the college in 
innumerable ways. Their wise counsel 
and willing assistance have greatly 
contributed to the college's success. 

Justice Cochran's affiliations in 
business and private life have always 
underscored his commitment to justice 
and the welfare of Virginians. He has 
served on the board of trustees and/or 
board of directors for over 10 colleges, 
universities, foundations and businesses. 
He has also served as president of the 
Virginia Bar Association. He retired as 
a Virginia Supreme Court Justice, 
serving on the bench from 1969 to 
1987. His career in the Virginia 
General Assembly spanned 20 years as 
he served as both a senator and as chair 
of the House of Delegates Courts of 
Justice Committee. 

Lee Stuart Cochran currently serves 
as chair of Monticello's Thomas 
Jefferson Memorial Foundation and 
previously served as its president. She 
has served on numerous local and state 
boards and commissions. Through 
varied leadership roles, Mrs. Cochran 
has helped raise millions of dollars for 
Virginia's charitable organizations. 

Justice and Mrs. Cochran were both 
instrumental in the establishment and 
continued success of the Museum of 
American Frontier Culture in Staunton. 
The museum depicts European and 
American heritage through living history 
exhibits on four farm sites. The Cochrans 
have served on the Museum Foundation's 
Board of Directors and were notified of

joined on Dr. Tyson's front lawn by U.S. 
Senator from Virginia John Warner and 
Dr. Tyson after attending the 1 995 
Commencement ceremony. 



their award during an announcement 
ceremony at the museum. 

The Outstanding Virginian Award 
was created by the Virginia General 
Assembly in 1984- The Cochrans are 
the 13th recipients of the award, which 
pays tribute on an annual basis to a 
citizen of Virginia who, by his or her 
dedication and outstanding leadership, 
has made a distinguished and signifi- 
cant contribution to the Common- 
wealth of Virginia. 

Members of the selection committee 
felt very strongly that in the case of the 
Cochrans, there could not be just one 
person selected. "Because under the law 
of Virginia a husband and wife are 
considered as one, we can pay tribute to 
both Justice and Mrs. Cochran," said 
Mr. James W. Fletcher III, chair of the 
Outstanding Virginian Day Committee. 
"They are the personification of a fine 
Virginia family and they are both in 
their own right outstanding citizens of 
the Commonwealth of Virginia."

J 995 Broman Concerts feature four Young Concert Artist winners 



The 1995-96 Carl Broman Concert 
Series opened in September with a duet 
performance by violinist Mikhail 
Kopelmann and his wife, pianist Anna 
Gourfinkel. The couple has been 
performing together since they were 
students at the Moscow Conservatoire. 

Mikhail Kopelmann was remem- 
bered by Broman Concert regulars as 
the first violinist of the renowned 
Borodin Quartet. The group stunned 
the Staunton community with an 
outstanding performance at St. Francis 
Catholic Church last year. One of the 
major quartets of today, the group had a 
close association with famed composer 



Dmitri Shostakovich. 

Mary Baldwin's popular Carl Broman 
Concert Series brings outstanding 
musicians to the campus and community 
during a year-long series of entertain- 
ment. Performances cover a wide range of 
musical tastes and interests. The series 
honors the memory of Dr. Carl Broman, 
who was head of the college's music 
department for three decades between 
1935 and the late 1960s. 

The second performance in the 
1995-96 Broman Series will feature 
soprano Camellia Johnson, on Thurs- 
day, October 26 at Staunton's Trinity 
Church. Camellia Johnson was the solo 



winner of the 1993 Young Concert 
Artists International Auditions. She 
made a remarkable New York recital 
debut in March 1994 during the Young 
Concert Artists Series. 

The remainder of the 1995-96 
Broman Concert Series includes three 
other Young Concert Artist winners 
performing in MBC's Francis Audito- 
rium. Nokuthula Ngwenyama, violist, 
will perform on January 26; Diana 
Doherty, oboist, on February 26; and 
Fazil Say, pianist, on March 20. The 
American Boychoir will also perform at 
Staunton's Trinity Church on Saturday, 
May 18, 1996.

Elizabeth Solomon 

1995 Outstanding ADP graduate wants to open children s minds 



by Roussie Woodruff '91 ADP 

Elizabeth Solomon, Mary Baldwin's 
Outstanding Adult Degree Program 
graduate for 1995, is a poet and a 
woman of the soil. She lives in 
Howardsville, VA, south of Charlottes- 
ville, in a huge old farmhouse with a 
wide porch and dozens of potted plants. 
During our interview, she mixed up the 
dough for her daily loaf of home-baked 
bread. Afterwards we toasted her 
success with a glass of her homemade 
elderberry wine. She sent me on my 
way with some of her garden's cucum- 
bers and a plant called "Mother of 
Thousands," which is an apt name for 
Elizabeth herself. 

Unable to have children, Elizabeth 
and her husband Wynn adopted two of 
their own and also took in 35 foster 
children. At one point Elizabeth had 14 
children in her home. They stayed 
anywhere from two weeks to two and a 
half years. "You don't love them any 
less because they're with you only a 
short time," she said. "You love them 
more because of what they've been 
through." No longer a foster mother, 
Elizabeth now volunteers as resident 
night manager at a local women's 
shelter. 

Elizabeth applied to Mary Baldwin's 
Adult Degree Program 10 years before 
she actually enrolled. "It all takes so 
long to come together," she said of the 
responsibilities and obligations, the 
fears and the finances that distract and 
delay us from our true desires. She 
admits her time was actually past due. 
The principal of a nearby school asked 
her to teach disadvantaged children. 
From giving poetry workshops in local 
schools, she knew she could make a 
difference in children's lives. But as 
much as she wanted the job, she could 
not take it because she did not have a 




degree. At last ready to commit herself 
to finishing her education, she told 
herself, "If I don't do it now, I probably 
never will." 

A published poet who was the 
founder and editor of a weekly newspa- 
per, the Central Virginia Leader (circula- 
tion 37,000), that printed only good 
news, Elizabeth chose English as her 
major. She graduated magna cum laude 
and "with distinction" for her senior 
English project. She is never far from 
her daily journal where she notes her 
thoughts, prayers, reflections and 
poems. Her accustomed discipline in 
writing was a big asset in college work. 
"I made lists every morning of what was 
important to accomplish including my 
assignments and my chores," she said. 
Elizabeth also knew to take breaks, 
which she would do by walking in the 
woods near home. "You have to get 
away from your books ... or you lose 
your focus." 

Despite her discipline, Elizabeth was 
frustrated by her "splintered time." "You 
can't give a hundred percent of your 
time to studying the way traditional 
students can," she said. For that reason 



her best memories of Mary Baldwin are 
the Summer Week courses she took in 
1993 and 1994. The week on campus, 
living in a dorm and eating in the 
college cafeteria, with nothing but her 
studies "begging" for her attention, gave 
her the traditional college experience 
she missed. Botany in the Field, she 
said, taught by Dr. Eric Jones, "was 
absolutely the most exhilarating 
experience of my college career and my 
life." And of Dr. James McCrory's 
Elementary School Methods, she said, 
"He is the best teacher I have ever had 
in my life. He's a great example I hope 
to follow." 

As are so many other college gradu- 
ates, Elizabeth Solomon is looking for a 
job. She would like to teach or do 
educational research, or perhaps work 
in human services. "I know I want to be 
involved in some way," she said, "in 
opening children's minds." Her mind 
has been opened to her own potential 
by her time at Mary Baldwin, and she 
urges other adults, as she will no doubt 
urge her students, to have courage. "You 
don't know what you can do," she said, 
"until you try."

Alumnae volunteers represent 
Mary Baldwin at college inaugurations 



MBC President Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson is 
often invited to participate in the 
inaugural ceremonies for the new 
presidents of other colleges and 
universities. If she were to accept all 
the invitations, she would be able to do 
little else. So, she often asks that a 
trustee, alumna or friend of Mary 
Baldwin represent her and the college 
at inaugurations across the country. 

The representative dons academic 
gown, cap and hood and takes part in 
the academic procession. Not only is 
the experience enjoyable for the 
alumna, but Mary Baldwin benefits as 
well from the public recognition of our 
standing in the academic community. 
Many, many thanks go to those listed

Baldwin at college and university

How to Eat Your Cake and Give it Away Too 



by Margaret Herscher Hitchman '40 




For years I had seen ads in 
various publications promoting 
the use of annuities as a means of 
giving to charities, but never 
considered this of any real 
interest to me. Recently, how- 
ever, my husband Bill and I 
decided it might be something 
we should consider. 

For several years we had been 
working with an estate planner, 
with the primary focus on 
conserving our estate from 



unnecessary taxes. We had seen 
what resulted when my father 
was not kept abreast of changing 
tax law by his lawyers until it was 
too late to alter his arrangements. 

We were also making plans to 
move to a retirement community 
requiring a monthly fee, a new 
arrangement for us long-time 
home owners. Hence, we began 
to look for some investments to 
provide a fairly sizeable and 
steady long term income — 
perhaps using the funds from the 
sale of our house. 

Insurance professionals started 
us thinking about annuities, but 
Bill questioned the tax implica- 
tions of their plans. Just what it 
was that made us think of a 
charitable gift annuity, I don't 
know. But when we began to 
investigate, we found that we 
could come close to eating our 
cake and giving it away too! 

We set up a gift annuity for 
Mary Baldwin College with the 
proceeds from the sale of our 
home, whose care had just begun 



to be burdensome. The return? 
We get a fairly substantial 
monthly income (with an 
inflation hedge built in) for as 
long as either of us lives, have a 
sizeable tax write-off (over five 
years), and will be able to help 
Mary Baldwin continue her 
mission after we are gone. 

Nancy Mclntyre, director of 
special gifts, worked through the 
Presbyterian Foundation 
(founded in 1799) to set up the 
mechanics of this gift. Now that 
it is in effect, there is little 
likelihood of future tax law 
changes using it up. 

Seems like a bargain to us.

estate planning can help you and 
your family, contact:

Double your vision 



An anonymous benefactor recently 
made a generous $250,000 gift - 
$50,000 a year for five years - to 
Mary Baldwin College for the 
Annual Fund, on one condition. 

This challenge gift must be 
matched by $50,000 in new 
Annual Fund gifts from our 
alumnae, parents and friends. 

Such a gift demonstrates the donor's 
firm belief in the mission of Mary 
Baldwin College and challenges 
you to join her. It is more important 
than ever for alumnae, parents 
and friends to support this year's 
Annual Fund. 

If you have never given before, give 
now-your dollars Mill have twice 
as much impact! And if you already 
give, please consider increasing 
your gift-those new dollars will be 
doubled! 



Because of the vision of her leaders, 
her alumnae, and her benefactors, Mary 
Baldwin College has been able to provide a 
quality education to women for over 150 years. 
Please help keep the vision alive with a gift to the 
Mary Baldwin College Annual Fund.
